For some, Black Friday is about shopping and holiday sales, but the social media campaign #optoutside encouraged people to spend the day playing outdoors instead. Dewey Gallegos, co-owner of the Pedal House Bike Shop in Laramie, has closed his doors and participated in #optoutside for the last three years, including this one.

 

This past Friday, he offered a free mountain bike demo on a newly opened public trail system on the eastern edge of town.
